29 Sept 2020 822 Update

All,

Due to increasing numbers of positive COVID-19 cases 822 RCACS will stand down with Wednesday night in person training until 6 Jan 2021.

Virtual training will continue.

The staff is planning a couple of full day Saturday training into the new year. This is to primarily catch up from missed activities such as a weekend FTX, etc.

As we brace for a possible roll back to Stage 2, other area cadet units are also remaining virtual until January 2021 so we can collaboratively work on a regional plan to assist each other if required. The plan may include breaking into two separate cohorts once in person training resumes (Wed & Thurs).

Needless to say we are living in unprecedented times is an understatement, as per attached letter from our RCSU CO, LCol Leonard. The staff are proactively putting ideas together to make things fun and engaging, especially when it comes to online training. We also know that without in person activities where hands-on learning is paramount, to try to maintain a solid learning experience. There is a lot going on behind the scenes, and things can change quickly. If the COVID numbers decrease substantially we may obtain authorization to return to unit and start up activities.

Stay engaged & stay healthy.
